The much-anticipated first-person shooter Battlefield Hardline was released on Tuesday, but gamers who purchased the Xbox One version may have been left disappointed trying to play online after it fell victim to a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack.

Developer Visceral acknowledged the problem on its Twitter account once it started:

Then revealed the news that the game had been hit by a DDoS attack:

As of Wednesday afternoon, the attacks were still occurring. So far, there have been no reports of problems with the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 or Xbox 360 versions of the game. The perpetrators are as yet unknown, with no one stepping forward to take responsibility.
